Merry Christmas!

Wishing everyone a Christmas full  of love and laughter, festive spirit and special memories. I have enjoyed this years build up to Christmas, even if it has been at break neck speed!

Thought I'd share my fave parts of the last day or two in pictures...enjoy:)

My Christmas day treat boxes for our guests.

All set for making our Christmas cookies. It's a Nigella Lawson recipe which I just love. See my little helper!

 Connor thought he'd lend a hand too.

We popped to dinner at the kids fave - Hogs Breath Cafe, last night.

 Such a beaut spot down at Cronulla.

We needed to pass some time after dinner until it got darker for our Christmas light drive. Fun in the park.

 There is one street in particular we go back to every year. They close off the street, put candles all the way down the road and play music.  The guy who built our pool happens to live at the end of the street. He was especially kind and let the kids be part of his display by jumping in the car (pic below)

A little more baking. Today was my father in law's birthday (yes Christmas Eve!) so I baked a very decadent slice for our family gathering. It is white chocolate and caramello slice. Again my helpers were on hand in the kitchen.

Just a sneak peak at the flower arrangement I picked up today. Not only does it look beautiful, but the gardenias included in it mean it smells devine too.

Merry Christmas to all of my fellow blog writers and readers. Have a wonderful day and don't forget to sit back and enjoy time with loved ones. I will be in touch again soon.
